Why don’t they just pay the NSA? Or better yet, just ask obama to give them the info.
Ching ping chu chow... there, did anyone get that?
“we hear you loud and clear”
I thought I had that for lunch at the dimsum place last week.
NSA Outsourced 2 Million Jobs
I wonder how many of those 2 million are fluent in English and have FR accounts to counter anytime someone suggests raising import tariffs on China.
A Chinese economist studying here told me last night that if the Communist Party gets out of line, then the Chinese "will just throw them out".
I don't think so!
On The Internet:
You’re against free trade, and thus a dirty commie! :)
Why can’t the author write a little better? I thought they were paying $2 mil for people to watch the internet.
You're for free trade which has allowed a real communist country to devastate our industries, rack up a huge trade deficit with us, allowing them to buy large amounts of our debt and worse our manufacturing firms and know how. And in the process they have caused us high unemployment, which is worsening our government debt problem.
And you call me the commie??!
I'm for raising the trade tariffs back up to where our founding fathers had them and to where they were our first 190 years. I'm for bringing back American industry and putting American workers back to work.

Ah, very good.
That :) did seem in-congruent.
Hey, China! I’ll do it for a $ million.
I agree with your ideas. I was just trying to have a little fun.
Take care. :)
It’s good to know that there are people on FR who agree with me.
I think more people are coming around to the realization that Free Trade has hurt us.
